Thank you for cruising through all this Ron!!

Ron has continued where Cass left off in cleaning up, repairing and making the exterior of the Fisher Price House more weather resistant again.

The skirting around the mobile home will be painted last - it has quite a bit more clean up to be done on it before the paint can go on.

The brown is looking different than I though it would...a little more blah....and that is totally from my color choice, not the quality of the job (Ron!). Though we are all feeling that this will be so much nicer than dirty white-ish, peeling, and in some places rotting exterior we had before!

Paul likes that the house will be a bit camouflaged due to the color, and Coco thinks all the green growies will look more green. So, there are upsides to the brown.

Cass found it at Superior Hardwoods in Missoula. It's solid hickory that was on sale .... maybe it was considered "seconds" because it has a lot of knots in it. Or due to the varied colors. I don't know why it was such a good price for solid wood. We are very happy with it!

Edited to add:  no brand name on the receipt. Just 4" natural hickory flooring, unfinished.

Why does your bag say "bombs"? The reason I ask is that my bag says "tiny ads" and it has stuff like this:
